Together We Stand

Today, more than ever, I have never been prouder to be an American. I have never been prouder to call myself a women. And I have never been prouder to stand up for what I believe in. After what was a quite heavy day yesterday, I woke up this morning to find my Facebook feed full of power, strength and hope. All around the world, people (women and men) came together to not only march against sexism, racism and misogyny, but to prove that the people still hold power. And that within the people who stand up for what they believe in, we find the good of the world. So while I would have loved nothing more than to be in DC, New York City, LA, London, Melbourne or any of the many many cities around the world that marched for our rights, I stand together with those citizens of the world to show my values and my power as another citizen. I remember listening to one of President Obama’s many speeches where he said that the most powerful word we have is “we”. And he couldn’t have been more accurate. Today WE proved that if WE stand together and bind our differences to become one, WE can overcome anything. WE can work through the hardest of times. And through those hardest of times WE will find hope in each other. The answers to our questions and the pathways to our dreams lie in the way we come together as one nation. Let’s push beyond our differences, allow ourselves to see others not as what they look like but as who they are, and open our hearts to see the good of the people and of the world. Together, We stand to make a difference in our world.
